Provincetown and Cape Cod Light

August 13, 2001

Many thanks to Lisa Durland, who made this trip possible!

On this day, it was close to 100 degrees, the humidity was instant sweat,
but Lisa and I decided to drive from Harwich to Provincetown and see what there
was to see. Perhaps if she didn't have a drop-top Saab, we might
have spent the day at the beach, submerged... It was HOT! ...but the Saab was cool...

So, off we went.

Cape Cod is an incredible place, and, like any incredible place, it's full of very curious people and sights.
